End of Year 6 Expectations

End of Year 6 Expectations


When pupils leave at the end of year 6, they will have been introduced to music from a variety of genres, backgrounds, periods and cultures. Throughout their time at Whiteheath Junior School, they will have developed key musical skills and had the opportunity to appraise, sing, play and create their own music.


At Whiteheath, we pride ourselves on the fact that all pupils have access to a range of extra-curricular opportunities. Through their participation in concerts, plays and carol services, we endeavour for every pupil to realise the value and joy that music can bring; creating a sense of community, promoting wellbeing and allowing them to build their confidence.


Upon leaving Whiteheath, pupils will:

  • Be able to sing and play music with confidence and control.
  • They will be able to compose music inspired by particular artists or genres.
  • They will be able to record their compositions using staff notation.
  • Have had the opportunity to perform in solo and ensemble contexts.
  • Be able to improvise music within a range of genres.
  • Be able to recall the key elements of music.
  • Appreciate a wide range of music, offering their thoughts and opinions on particular pieces.
  • Be able to comment on how music has developed over the years.
  • Have had the opportunity to learn an instrument, either in a whole-class setting or through peripatetic lessons.
  • Have performed in events including carol services and Christmas plays, combining their musical skills with drama and dance.
